1:28 God blessed man with all the fish, birds, and animals and gave him authority over all of them. What a huge responsibility this is for us that should not be taken lightly.
First, we should always see other living creatures as a blessing. How often do we see them as an annoyance or bother? We should always looked at them with thanksgiving. Yes, this is hard when those rabbits eat my flower garden! Or when those pesky squirrels de-stuff my yard furniture cushions. Or when those birds poop all over my car and everything in my yard.
Second, to always be conservation minded and to always lovingly, with effort, do what is necessary to care for all living creatures, rather than look the other way, is a huge responsibility. Sometimes we let our designated "conservation staff" or "animal control officer" have the responsibility, but it is not just theirs to be done.
2:1-3 DAY SEVEN God rested.
Then sings my soul, my Savior God to Thee, how great Thou art! What joy shall fill my heart!
